Notes

These discs are not 100% flawless (eg. reel flip in Rider, sporadic anomalies)
but they are absolutely worth getting. To my knowledge this is the best that
circulates. They do sound amazing.

enjoy,

Arguably their greatest year. Ron's still in good health, and he ends the show in fine form. Let it shine!

~This Day in GRATEFUL DEAD History~

Get both shows August 14-15, 1971. I think the 14th is a better show.

I highly recommend adding this show to your 1971 GRATEFUL DEAD collection.

1971 was the "Best Year" in GRATEFUL DEAD music in my opinion...Classic 1971 sound. The sound that made them famous/infmaous...

This show does have Truckin-->Drums-->Other One-->Me & My Uncle-->Other One-->Wharf Rat, & Turn On Your Lovelight, which the other show doesn't.

I recommend using your EQ during playback of most of the shows on the IA, this one included.

Windows Media Player has a 10 band EQ and SRS WOW effects that enhance the sound.

Here's one way to stream/dowload this show:

The IA recommends users of Windows XP view this web-page with RealPlayer.

RealPlayer is a free media player you can download at www.realplayer.com.

Using RealPlayer to view this webpage, click the VBR M3U link to open the songs in the Playlist.

If your Playlist is not open, open it by clicking the Playlist icon at the lower right hand corner of RealPlayer.

Once the songs are in the Playlist, double click the song to play it, then click the record button at the lower left hand corner of Realplayer to record it.

When the red line reaches the other end click the stop button to download the song. Your song is in the RealPlayer Downloads folder.

Repeat these steps for each song.

OR

Hook up audio cables (1/8th inch stereo male jack with two rca male jacks at the other end) from your headphone jack on your computer to your audio input on your Reel to Reel, Cassette,VHS, CD, DVD, MP3, recorder and record it in real time...duh?

Eat, Drink, Be Merry and Listen to the GRATEFUL DEAD, for tomorrow we may die....

Thanks for the LOVE from 1971.

PS: Remember to click on the "DeadLists Project" link and get the "Poster" for this show.

PSS: Sorry Evan, I think the DEAD blew their wad the night before, this show is nice, but the night before was incredible.

Thanks Andy G.

This show has it in all its engaging firebrand.

Like cruising silently alongside a whale.

Thar she blows!

Boring P.S.: These are the only two shows (and the 14th) that the GD played the city i was living. (I usually had to drive a considerable distant to see them perform.)

Both are GREAT GREAT shows but this, the 15th, is the best of the two. And this particular recording is the best of the lot.

Some anomalies and some major flubs in performance and in recording but so what?

It just sounds soooo gooooood.
